Made to Measure Curtains

We have a large collection of warm and cool neutrals for making curtains to create soothing and calm interiors. 

Neutral tones create a timeless interior, but do not need to be dull and boring; by layering different shades and using texture a neutral scheme will be interesting and relaxing. 

Neutral fabrics can range from muted Duck Eggs, to Creams and sophisticated shades of grey such as Dove, Scree and Charcoal.

You need to choose the best shade for your room by considering the way the room faces, the amount of light you get and the atmosphere you want to create. Do you want a light and airy room or are you trying to create a warm and cosy scheme?

Using these neutrals in living rooms and bedrooms creates a relaxing feel and are suitable for all types of homes – from city apartments to country houses: I would recommend making a mood board so that you can see how the different shades and textures you have chosen work together.

To do this you need to collect samples of the items you are using.  You can also include images of things you have used for your inspiration for example photographs or cut outs from magazines.

To make the scheme interesting try mixing stripes, spots and florals in neutral tones with your Plains.  For example, you could choose a neutral fabric for curtains such as my Plain Duck Egg Linen Union and then use gentle florals such as my Cow Parsley in Duck egg and Cornflower for the cushions.

All our curtain fabrics are made from eco-friendly linen. They are printed in the UK on a good weight of 100% Linen and Linen Union and are all suitable for neutral curtains. We hold a good stock of all our fabrics ensuring delivery is usually within 3-5 working days with an overnight service available. The same team, who take you order will roll, inspect and cut it, so accuracy and quality can be assured.

How to measure up for your curtains:

A video guide to help to measure up 

Please remember that pattern repeats and fabric widths are automatically calculated if you order through our web site. It is advisable to fit your pole or track before ordering your curtains. Your pole or track should ideally extend 30cms on each side of the window so when drawn back light is maximised and at least 15cms above the top of the window to block out as little light as possible again. Please use metric units only when measuring.

Poles:

WidthIf you have a pole, measure the distance between the finials. (A)

Finished Length for pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length using a curtain pole, we recommend allowing between 2cms and 5cms above the eyelet on the underside of the curtain ring, depending on how much of the pole and rings you wish to hide. From the measurement you choose above the eyelet, measure down to the bottom of the hem (see B & C) and that is your finished length measurement. 

Finished length for cottage pleat (choice of either 5cm or 10cm depth - see below)- these have to be made using a 3cm single position tape, which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, please provide us with the distance from the eyelet to the floor, and depending on your choice of depth, add 5cm or 10cm accordingly.

Finished length for flop over frill - these curtains have to be made with a 3cm single position tape which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor. Don't add any extra for the frill, we will do that.

Please note, we will add 25cm for hem allowance.

                                   

                                           

 

Tracks

Width - If you have a track, measure the total length of the track, including any overlap where the curtains meet in the middle.

Finished length: For pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length of your curtains using a track add 1cm above the track (to hide the track) down to the bottom of the hem. (D)*

Finished length for cottage pleat (choice of either 5cm or 10cm depth - see below)- these have to be made using a 3cm single position tape, which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, please provide us with the distance from the eyelet to the floor, and depending on your choice of depth, add 5cm or 10cm accordingly.

Finished length for flop over frill curtains - these have to made with a one inch single position tape which makes the finished length non-adjustable. To get your finished length measurement, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor and don't add any extra for the frill as we will do this.
